Historian’s “Social Media” Party!

As of today, I am officially job hunting… So, in an effort to find a great job as a Community Manager/Social Media guy, I’m hosting a crazy three-day blog, web site promotion event and social media party on my blog, my Facebook Fan page and my Twitter account. What’s truly unique about this event is that I plan to check out every link posted on my page, comment and share the link as I deem appropriate. Everybody may participate. It’s not necessary to have a blog or other website.

  3. In what ways can I participate?
    You can post a link to your blog or website with a brief non-hypey introduction. You can network (see below) with other people and check out their links. You can even be a fly on the wall (no pun intended) and just chill.

    You are encouraged to network, but please do so in a professional manner to avoid being forced to play “Strawberry Shortcake: Musical Match-Ups” with a broken controller.
  11. When will you be hosting another event like this one?
    I don’t know. It depends on how this one goes. If I get a great job, you can expect something like this at my new position. If not, I will hire bouncers and make it a rave with a $5 cover instead.
  12. What happens if I don’t attend this one?
    You’ll have to live with a guilty conscience for all eternity.

    I’ve got kids and bills, work with me here.
  17. What if you haven’t answered my question?
    I just pretend to be perfect, post it below and I will try and answer.

* Note that I reserve the right to modify the rules and conditions of this event arbitrarily and capriciously with or without prior or subsequent notice. I will also remove posts and comments as I see fit.

Don’t hesitate to connect, leave a comment, or offer me a job.

I want to thank Larry Brauner of http://online-social-networking.com/ for the idea for this event.
